  1. Control managed user external collaboration to webmail accounts

    Setting that allows admin of corporate instance to control/limit managed users being collaborated into personal Box webmail accounts. This would be a setting to control/limit an outside Box webmail user collaborating a corporate managed user into its personal account.

  2. Customize group admin access, Just to handle folder addition

    Currently, Group admins have more privileges over on box groups, In our environment, we have 0 group admins for all the groups we manage.

    Trying to see if we can have more customization on the roles been defined for a group admin.

    A role where they can just manage content access will really help us bring down admin control on group access.

  3. Collaborator Restriction to a folder.

    We need the ability to decide which subfolders a specific collaborator can access. Specifically, we need to restrict access of one collaborator to a subfolder (and all of its contents/subfolders). I was told this is not something Box cannot do. This is an issue. We need to set up an ethical wall in the firm. This associate needs to retain access to everything he currently can access, but legally we need to restrict his access to this matter (folder) and all it's contents.

  5. Tag permission levels

    There should be a way to customize permission level based on the tag on a case. For example, within a folder the tag "confidential" should lower the the permission level to not allow the person to download or view the item.

  7. Recommend a new permission level that is the same access as "Viewer" but the "Viewer" to share at the same level

    The sharing level of "Viewer" is beneficial to share approved documents through Duke Box. In our capacity the information in the approved document that is shared with the owner as "Viewer" should also be accessible to other individuals that the owner deems appropriate so these individuals know exactly want is approved, what is expected of them, and how to remain compliant. Because we issue the approval and maintain the final document and do not manage the owners group that needs access to the approved document, it would be very beneficial if, after the document owner gets "Viewer" permission to the…

  8. Collaboration expiration for specific collaborators

    Collaboration expiration can only be applied on a folder level at the moment and cannot be applied to specific collaborators. I would like this feature for specific collaborators in a folder.

  9. external share

    Need the ability to provide some users/groups to create external shares for a longer or indefinite period of time. If we have a long range project I have to disable to option to control how long a share stays out there - that in my opinion is a security risk.

  10. annotate

    When adding an annotation to a file, it would be nice to make it a once stop annotate and enable the person that i am @ mentioning to annotate the file and not require the owner to first extend the file through permissions, then go annotate. Annotation should be one process for sharing and extending annotation.

  11. Ability to set an expiry date for external collaborators

    It would be very helpful to secure access to our files if we were able to set an expiry date when inviting external collaborators to a folder. It seems the only option is to share a link with an expiry date, but that leaves it open for the link to be sent to others and doesn't help if a collaborator needs wider access permissions, or just flag it up as a reminder in our Outlook calendars!

  12. Allow group administrators of SSO-enabled tenants to change the email addresses of group members

    According to the information provided by following link,
    group administrators are authorised to change the email addresses of managed users.

    *
    Link:
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043692374

    Manage group member accounts:
    Edit non-admin user accounts in the Managed Users tab, including user name, email, storage, and settings.
    *
    In the case of tenants using SSO,
    only the administrator and co-administrator can change a managed user's email address.

    In this case, the group administrator cannot change the email address of the group member.

    However, in a tenant with a very large number of users,
    it is very difficult for the administrator/co-administrator to complete all the…

  13. Co-admin should be able to login to other co-admin accounts and service accounts

    Box co-admin should have the ability to log into other co-admin accounts and application services accounts to manage content. Today, you rely on using Box APIs or the primary Box admin account. It would be more convenient for coadmins to use the Box webapp instead.

  14. Integration of Collaborator list page (web app) and group page (admin console)

    Integration of Collaborator list page (web app) and group page (admin console)

    The collaborator list page (web app) and group page (admin console) seem to treat inactive users differently, and the group page intentionally excludes inactive users and only includes active users.
    The Collaborators list page in the web app does not.

    Please consolidate the handling of inactive users as this specification is confusing to users and to administrators.

  15. Allow Shared folders to be owned by Domain ( vs user)

    Similar to Google's Shared Drives, allowing admins to set ownership of a shared drive at the domain level vs user (human or service) would minimize the need for Service Accounts or changing ownership as users leave the company.

  16. Group - Allow the deletion of a list of user

    Group Management - Allow the deletion of a list of user.
    And do not search user one by one in the group, then click one by one on Remove button and then save ...
    When you have hundred users to remove in a group with thousand users, it is boring and time consuming...
    To add a group we can add several users at the same time, it is better !

  17. Count previewing large Video files as "preview" in User Statistics Report

    Count previewing large Video files as "preview" in User Statistics Report.

    Sometimes previewing large Video files is not counted as "preview" in User Statistics Report.

    It should be counted.

  18. external users become managed users

    I am trying to include external collaborators that have an email from my company, but Box counts the as internal users. How can I avoid this problem?

  19. Add Box IDs to Managed Users Report

    Currently, Box IDs are not accessible from the Managed Users Report. To obtain the Box IDs, I have to use the CLI.

    Our company deprovisions Box accounts based on the Last Login date in the Managed Users Report and it would be helpful if the Managed Users Report include the Box IDs.
